Allergy to Originality

Perhaps this blog should be renamed to “Remixes and Plagiarism” but not to sound to much like a broken record I found a rather Lynchian video exploring the ideas of originality in Pop’ Culture. In it the characters quote Mark Twain leading me to find a wonderful letter by him on this very subject. Do check out the video below and if you liked that letter do follow Letters of Note on twitter. Enjoy!

Below a very dedicated person has mashed up Star Wars with all it’s filmic influences.

 

And one more for luck here’s a guide on the (many, many, many) films that influenced the career of Quentin Tarintino

 

Happy Watching!
